Foster Grandparents Program

Foster Grandparents are role models, mentors, and friends to children with exceptional needs. The program provides a way for volunteers age 55 and over to stay active by serving children and youth in their communities.

Volunteers serve at thousands of local organizations that:
Help children learn to read and provide one-on-one tutoring
Mentor troubled teenagers and young mothers
Care for premature infants or children with disabilities
Help children who have been abused or neglected
All you need to join is the ability to give the kind of comfort and love that sets a child on the path toward a successful future. If you’re 55 or older and want to share your experience and compassion, you have what it takes to be a Foster Grandparent.
